Introducing the Dúo Mujeres Activas (Active Women Duo)
Maribel is a widow and she has 5 children (aged 24, 22, 20, 18 and 10). She engages in running her book store, an activity she started one year and six months ago. Her shop is located in Bárcenas Villa Nueva, in the Guatemala department. She has been a FAPE customer for two years and she is now interested in receiving a loan to invest it her book store (to buy notebooks, pencils, and pens etc.), as the products she sells do not currently meet her customers' needs. She wishes for the children to become good professionals and to have good jobs, and she hopes they will be able to support her in continuing carrying out her activity.

About FAPE

FAPE, the Foundation for the Assistance of Small Businesses, is a nonprofit, socially-minded institution that provides loans to micro-entrepreneurs across Guatemala.

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
